Mission Accomplished!

Dear Family and Friends,

I don't have any regrets whatsoever with how I concluded the last week of my mission. I accomplished everything that I wanted too and feel comfortable with the final moments of this chapter in my life. However, like I stated last week, this isn't the end of being a missionary. This has been the most incredible experience of my life and words in an email can't describe how I'm feeling right now. I look forward to sharing these experiences with you all in person upon my return home.

I'd just like to leave you with my simple testimony that I know that God lives and Jesus Christ is his son, the Redeemer of the world. I have worked as an instrument in his hands with the Spirit as my guide as I have strived to remain worthy of it's companionship. I know that God has a plan for all of his children and that progression to become like him is a necessary part of that plan. I know coming to serve the people of Uganda and Rwanda was an essential part of my personal progression. I testify that no greater happiness comes than from living a life focused on the Gospel and it's principles and ordinances. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's original church restored to the Earth by his hand through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know this because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon numerous times and I know it to be the word of God. I know that Jesus' Atonement is central to that plan and through it, I have become a changed man.
